About Photosensitive Seizures 

A very small percentage of people may experience a secure when exposed to certain visual 
images, including flashing lights or patterns that may appear in video games- Even people 
who have no history of seizures or epilepsy may have an undiagnosed condition that can 
cause these "photosensitive epileptic seizures" while watching videa games. 
These seizures may have a variety of symptoms including: lightheadedness, altered vision, 
eye or face twitching, jerking or shaking of arms or legs, disorientation, confusSwi, or 
momentary loss of awareness . Seizu res may also cause loss of consciousness or convul- 
sions that can lead to injury from falling down or striking nearby objects, 
Immediately stop playing and consult a doctor if you experience any of these symptoms. 
Parents should walrti for or ask their children about the above symptoms — children and 
teenagers are more likely than adults to experience these seiiures. 
The risk of photosensitive epileptic seizures may be reduced by sitting further from the tele- 
vision screen, using a smaller television screen, playing in a well-lit room, and not playing 
when you are drowsy or fatigued. 

If you or any of your relatives have a history of seizures or epilepsy, consult a doctor before
